Electric Company, chartered in 1934, is a firm with a distinguished
past, it is just as importantly an organization with a dynamic present
and a definite future. The famous 260 Volt-Ohm-Milliammeter put
Simpson on the map and cemented a reputation for quality that still
defines Simpson in the marketplace today." I was first introduced
to the Simpson 260 volt-ohmmeter (VOM) in the radar shop where I
was assigned un the USAF. Here is the modern version of that classic,
Simpson 260-8 VOM; it looks a lot like the original.
